We just finished our diving certificates, and we are so lucky that we have some really good dive sites right outside the gate of the house. We are diving several times a week off the beach here so I am sure we will have a massive underwater photo collection up soon.
With Apo island only 7 kilometers from our house we are very spoiled with the dive sites already, I would be hard pushed going back to Denmark to dive there after seeing the beautiful underwater world of the Philippines.
